About Dennis J Battock

Bio

Dr. Battock (Emeritus) founded Aurora Denver Cardiology Associates in 1973 and helped develop ADCA and the Colorado Heart Institute into the respected institutions they are today. Formally stepping down as president in 2001, Dr. Battock continued to be an integral member of ADCA by actively being involved both in patient care on a part-time basis as well as helping to recruit some of the nation's best trained cardiologists to the practice.

Dr. Battock graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 1964 and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Kings County Hospital in New York City. He returned to Colorado and UCHSC to complete his fellowships in clinical pharmacology and cardiology and served two years in the Army prior to founding ADCA.

The recipient of the University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Centennial Recognition Award for Meritorious Service, Dr. Battock has held many administrative positions within the practice as well as at many Denver Metropolitan Area hospitals. A member of the Colorado Medical Society, Aurora Adams County Medical Society, and a contributor to the community at large, he has published numerous articles throughout his career related to his extensive experience in clinical pharmacology and analysis of the physiological effects of drugs, and other interventions in coronary disease and cardiac surgery.
